Hand Knitting Patterns
Portland, Maine, is a great seaside city with a vibrant downtown, yet it remains within easy reach of plenty of outdoor fun. Mainers bring a sense of style to their outdoor pursuits, and the state is famous as the home of great outdoor gear. This pullover is aptly named, since it boasts comfort, warmth, and style, all in one. Work the waist and hip shaping as given, or omit both and work the piece straight down from the underarm for a looser fit.
This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge, with waist and hip shaping. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.
